It’s no secret that I’m low-key obsessed with Madewell denim.Ever since their denim brand relaunch last fall, I’ve been slowly building my jeans collection to include three different pairs of their signature Skinny Skinny fit. Though I’ve questioned some of their choices in the past, the overall quality of Madewell denim is unmatched, in my opinion. To be totally honest, I’ve never actually found a pair of jeans that have fit me better than these guys. So imagine my glee upon walking into a Madewell store yesterday and discovering the best Madewell jeans of all time.
That’s a pretty bold statement, and I don’t throw it out there lightly. I shudder slightly to admit that I’m definitely one of those people who thinks it’s totally acceptable to wear leggings as pants (bite me), and as the weather starts to transition into the cooler months, I find that regular denim jeans can sometimes fit into that awkward class of “it’s too hot to wear these” and “but my legs might get cold.” And don’t even get me started on how uncomfortable it is to wear jeans when it’s humid.
Enter the Madewell Skinny Skinny Sateen jeans. These pants are legging-soft, which makes sense as they’re made from super stretchy, garment dyed sateen. It’s the same kind of fit as the regular Skinny Skinny line, but with so much extra stretch and softness that it actually feels like you’re wearing leggings instead of jeans. Perfect for bridging the transition into fall, no?
Word to the wise: try these on in a store if you can. This particular fabric tends to run a bit small, so definitely try out a few sizes to figure out which one works for you. I think the deep plum color (a bit of a misnomer as the color is closer to an oxblood than a plum) is gorgeous, and I’m presently donning a pair of the techno grey. Definitely check these jeans out — you won’t regret it, I promise.
What are you wearing as we head into fall? I’d love to know!
